Australia’s most popular ‘cleaning queen’ has revealed three super easy and inexpensive hacks that can have your home smelling amazing in minutes

Chantel first places lemons and hot water in an oven for twenty minutes to rid the kitchen and surrounding spaces of food odors.

The next hack can make any home smell like your favorite coffee shop in minutes.

She uses coffee beans and vanilla, one of her favorite flavor combinations, for the trick.

Mom simply simmers the two ingredients on her stovetop for a “cozy coffee” smell.

Chantel also revealed that the mixture was not wasted and could then be used for iced coffee.

The last hack she shared was simply another way to wash cushion covers.

“I wash my cushion covers with baking soda and essential oils to keep them smelling fresh longer,” she said.

Using essential oils instead of ingredients like lemon and coffee also opens you up to several other floral scents.

The mom also shared how to clean your stove and oven without scrubbing in another of her game-changing cleaning hacks.

The Melbourne-based housewife simply mixes a cup of baking soda with a quarter cup of washing up liquid and a dash of water to make a cleaning paste.

She then applies the solution to the stove or oven with a brush before letting it sit for two hours.

“The mixture does the hard work of breaking down grime and grease,” she said.

“Wipe away to reveal your shiny oven and stovetop,” she added.

Mila told her fans that the longer they left the paste on, the better it worked, even suggesting that they try keeping it on overnight for even more amazing results.

The video has been liked over 20,000 times and hundreds of enthusiastic housewives have left comments.

“Incredible, that feels like a really deep clean, one woman marveled.

“You make cleaning fun,” wrote another.

“It seems a lot friendlier than oven cleaners with toxic chemicals,” said a third.

While die-hard fans thanked the mom for sharing the video again.

“I’m keeping it before I lose it again,” one promised.

“I did this the last time you posted and it worked so well,” said another.

She brushes off the special blend with a pain brush before leaving it on for at least two hours

A third asked if it was ‘exactly the same’ as a cleaner the mum shared ‘a long time ago’.

“It’s a twist, I added more dish soap to make it easier to remove,” she added.

The video has been viewed 812,000 times in just 24 hours, proving the mum continues to be one of Australia’s most beloved cleaning influencers.
